    I don't think it's a good idea to be completely cashless. There has to be back up options of making, and receiving, payments, for when the tech fails.

    The tech failed on the bus the other day and we all got a free ride, as the machine wouldn't register Oyster cards or debit cards. It has its moments!

    This thread is leading up to a nutjob argument about how the EU will spy on us when we use electronic payments.

    See if I'm wrong.

    With cashless, how are you supposed to pay for drugs, smuggled cigarettes or get jobs done without VAT being added?

    I like cash. How could I hoard it otherwise?

    Gold and silver are the only real money and very easy to hoard. Paper money is currency and becoming increasingly worthless.
